HERE IS THE ARTICLE:

WASHINGTON—in keeping with its commitment to hold inaugural events that celebrate our common values and reflect the diversity and history of our great nation, President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden's Inaugural Committee officially extended an offer to the Crow Nation of Montana Horse Mounted Unit to march in the 56th Inaugural Parade.

Members of the Crow Nation of Montana Horse Mounted Unit will join representatives from across the country and our Armed Forces in the historic parade down Pennsylvania Avenue following President-elect Obama's swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the Capitol.

"I am honored to invite these talented groups and individuals to participate in the Inaugural Parade," said President-elect Obama. "These organizations embody the best of our nation's history, diversity and commitment to service. Vice President-elect Biden and I are proud to have them join us in the parade."

Organizations wishing to participate in the parade submitted an application to the Armed Forces Inaugural Committee (AFIC), which then assisted the Presidential Inaugural Committee in reviewing all of the groups' applications. All told, 1,382 organizations applied to participate, setting a new standard for interest in marching in the parade.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee was assisted in its selection process by a group of experienced military musicians, who utilized their expertise to help assess the presentation skills of marching bands, musical acts and drill teams.

Two dozen Crow Nation members will ride paint horses single file. President-elect Obama visited the Crow Nation in Crow Agency, Mont., in May.

All participants in the Inaugural Parade are responsible for paying for their own lodging and transportation to and from Washington, D.C. The Committee has been working closely with area governments and civic organizations to facilitate access to affordable accommodations and would like to encourage citizens from across the country to reach out and help the Crow Nation of Montana Horse Mounted Unit raise the necessary resources to participate in this historic event.

If you are interested in finding out more about supporting the Crow Nation of Montana Horse Mounted Unit and their participation in the 56th Inaugural Parade, please contact Robert Old Horn, Executive Assistant to the Chairman of the Crow Nation Robert Venne, at 406-638-3868 or Donald Spotted Tail at 406-638-3717.

Absolutely wonderful!!!!! I am crying as I read this. Yes indeed, the First Nation People embody some of the BEST of this nation's history, diversity and commitment to service. We should never forget them.

It will be a very proud and beautiful moment in American history to see these talented Native Americans and their beautifully trained horses participate in this historic event.

Thank you Kat!

This is a proud day for the Crow & maybe all the nations of the Native Americans.. on T.V. people will see that the Native Americans are still here & haven't been brushed under the rug (so to speak)... I hope this day will be one of an opening for ALL Native Americans & the fear of many of the Native Americans will be no more.. this I hope will be the day opening for talks & alot more ... YOU DO NOT BELONG ON RESERVATIONS.. you deserve to be Praised for all you have gone thru thru the years...it takes one like the Native Americans to know what you are going thru.. God Bless Obama & YOU -All...thanks Kat Mosi :-)
